The Motel is horrible. Right from the start an old grumpy lady receives you, then the rooms....well, there was a confy bed. Full stop. It really remind me of those horror movies where things happen in a motel. The door lock didn´t seem safe enough, I had to put a chair just to feel safe.

I am not really picky with hotels but this was awful. I paid 80 dollars for a room the made me feel dirty as soon as I walked in. The floor was disgusting, the bathroom looked like it was under construction and the soaps where on the floor like they were thrown there. The bed was hard and there was... More

The long and short of this place is that it's okay. At over $100/night with taxes, it's definitely expensive for what it offers. But this is also SLO, where prices are high. All the basics were there: A/C, clean, hot water, decent bed, fridge, hangers, etc. That said... This place needs A LOT of physical improvements and renovation. The place... More

If you're not too complicated like me this "motel" will be enough for a night but it's cartainly not good. It's quite disgusting, the floor is more than dirty (watch the picture below), the shower is certainly not the place where you want to wash yourself, the walls are in a bad state, the floor too and I'll pass on...

Read the terrible reviews and had to check it out myself. Just driving through the property tells me the ghastly comments are accurate. Good God this place is a dump. The few people we saw outside were trashy, and as for the grounds, yuck! I would never want to see the inside of a room. Based on the comments and... More

This hotel was appalling. The room was not clean, no coffee maker, glass, hairdryer or iron. Way overpriced and the bathroom, oh my god, it was disgusting, the full extent of which was revealed in daylight. Other reviews (just seen by us) cover this hotel well. It should be reported to authorities.

The Homestead was a last resort on a weekend with multiple wine festivals in the area. Claiming to be booked out, rooms clocked in between 90$ and 150$ (the latter for the 3-bed room). Being directly situated next to Highway 101 was indeed the first warning - even though this particular corner is home to a patch of at least... More

Please do not stay at the Homestead. My daughter and I spent a night there Oct.13, 2012. It was parents week-end at the University and rooms were scarce. The furniture had ground in dirt and was sticky. There were huge rust colored stains on the side of the box springs (don't know what it was.) Just everything was dirty..walls, floors,... More
